Welcome to the Iron Goat Trail Website

How to Get to the Iron Goat Trail

A Northwest Forest Pass is required for parking at the Martain Creek and Wellington trailheads. Purchase day ($5) or annual ($30) permit from the Internet, the Skykomish Ranger station or other outlet. Refer to the Mt. Baker-Snoqualmie Forest Service web page for more information. Free passes are available in return for volunteering on trails. No pass is needed to park at the Scenic Trailhead. Universally accessible toilets are available at all three trailheads.

Getting to the Iron Goat Trail via the Martin Creek Trailhead:

Take the Stevens Pass Highway, U.S. 2, to Milepost 55, 6 miles east of the town of Skykomish or to Milepost 58.3 at Scenic (5.6 miles west of the summit). Turn north on to the Old Cascade Highway, U.S. Forest Service (USFS) Road #67. Proceed to the junction with USFS Road #6710 (2.3 miles from Milepost 55 or 1.4 miles from Milepost 58.3). Turn onto USFS Road #6710 and proceed 1.4 miles to the Martin Creek trailhead parking lot.

Getting to the Iron Goat Trail via the Wellington Trailhead:

Drive U.S. 2 to Milepost 64.3 just west of Stevens Pass and turn north on the Old Cascade Highway. (If you are coming from the Puget Sound area, because of limited sight distance you should proceed east to Stevens Pass, turn around at the crest of the hill where visibility is optimum, and return to Milepost 64.3) Proceed 2.8 miles on the Old Cascade Highway to its junction with the USFS Road 050. Turn right and proceed to the trailhead parking lot.

Getting to the Iron Goat Trail via the Scenic Trailhead:

Take US 2 to MP 58.3. Turn north onto the Old Cascade Highway, then turn immediately right into the Iron Goat Interpretive Site.
